Neighbors for Better


Fiscal Sponsorship

Fiscal Sponsorship is an arrangement in which a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt entity or nonprofit organization (the Sponsor or Grantor = NBN) agrees to accept donations on behalf of another entity that is NOT tax-exempt (the Project or Grantee). In a Fiscal Sponsorship, the Project or Grantee can apply for grants, conduct fundraising activities, and accept tax-deductible donations through the sponsor (NBN). The Sponsor/Grantor (NBN) can also provide other services to the Project, such as administrative support.

The Fiscal Sponsorship Program is an adjunct program to the Grassroots Grants Program that is designed to strengthen neighborhoods in Winston-Salem and Forsyth County by supporting a wide range of community-based initiatives. Our fee for this service is a 10% administrative charge of the project amount.

Print Shop

NBN’s Community Print Shop is one of the ways Neighbors for Better Neighborhoods give back to local grassroots groups and community-based nonprofits. We allow our members to make color copies for only $0.25 per copy. You can also get a black and white copy for only $0.07 per copy. There is a 24-hour processing time for large orders.

Organizing Support

Organizing Support is a process used to bring the talents resources, knowledge, and skills of people in a community together to transform themselves and their neighborhoods. NBN's Community organizing program offers support to the long term and ongoing neighborhood improvement work. Assistance to neighborhood groups through community organizing acts as a bridge between technical assistance and leadership training that is provided by NBN with the ultimate goal of creating strong, viable and productive neighborhoods. Services are offered to Nonprofits and Institutions at a service rate.


NBN provides workshops to community institutions that are providing services in neighborhoods making them aware of the principles of “Asset Based Community Development (ABCD)” and helping them move from a deficit service delivery model to a strength-based model.

Topics can have included: Gentrification, Entrepreneurship, Understanding the Local Economy, Participatory Budgeting, Neighborhood Blight, Workers Cooperatives, Sustainable Communities, Community Safety, Youth Engagement and much more… Services are offered to Nonprofits and Institutions at a service charge for in house workshops. 

Facilitation Services

NBN provides support for working groups by providing meeting space, marketing of the group, coaching for facilitators, and childcare services for reasonable a cost.

Technical Assistance

Technical Assistance Service guides neighborhood community-based groups through a specific set of assessments and planning processes that will lead to the creation of a short-term action plan or a long-term strategic plan.

NBN's Resident Leader Service

NBN’s Resident Leader service is a way to put the idealism of Asset Based Community Development into action. As a service, our Resident Leaders program can assist organizations with building relationships with residents who need their services or partnership.
